Making Scripture Relevant to Modern Readers
Many people cope with Monday doldrums with a nice hot shower or a cup of coffee. Personally, I find that a great way to greet a new day is with a snatch of song or a finely crafted poem. The book is intended for anyone who wishes that there were more daily prayers reflecting contemporary values but still employing the traditional Hebrew cadences. Here you’ll find my original poetic compositions in Hebrew, introduced and translated (creatively) into English with notes for people who want to delve more deeply into their meaning. If some of these poems strike a chord, great! If none of the poems speaks to you, I still hope and pray that upon reading them you become mobilized to compose prayers that are as meaningful to you as these are to me.
